Heavy Truck Traffic Soon To Be Prohibited On Coaldale Streets

 
 

COALDALE:  The Town is giving the boot to heavy trucks on their streets.

 

As of next Monday, August 19th, heavy trucks, including cattle liners, will no longer be allowed on 20th avenue, also known as "Main Street", or along 8th street, on the east edge of the town.

 

Town officials say heavy trucks have been using the streets as a through way from County roads to Highway-3 for years and the complaints are getting louder.

 

According to Town Director of Operations Gary Scherer, "Heavy trucks make noise and people don't appreciate that," says Scherer. "Plus they damage the roads, which the Town has to pay for even though we don't get any compensation. It may be convenient for truckers to use the roads and save themselves a couple of minutes but it's ultimately the people of Coaldale who have to pay the price for that convenience."

 

Scherer says trucks can avoid 20th avenue and 8th street, by using County roads east of Town to reach Highway-3.  The restrictions do not apply to commercial or delivery trucks which have to access the downtown business area.

 

The existing truck route designation will be removed and "No Heavy Truck" signs will be installed to remind truckers that the roads are closed to their use. Regional Police will enforce the new rule.
